    I was watching the ESPN.com gameday chat with the NFL crew a little while ago and they were discussing the Browns coaching job. Randy Mueller came in the conversation and said he had heard Nick Saban wanted the Browns job.

    I hate to write post like this but just passing on the info to you tiger fans. Probrably just a bunch of houpla.

    He's from that area and cut his football teeth in Ohio, so you never know. But,there's always going to be NFL rumors about Saban and it WILL happen someday. I've learned to just ignore them until you hear it from him.

    BTW, if he does go to the NFL, he will probably have to take a pay cut to do it. Although some teams may be willing to fork over the jack, most will not pay him what he's making here.

    I gotta think Saban would command 3 million minimum.

    Is Mueller their GM? If so, then I would say that it is significant.

    If he's just an unemployed yahoo....then no.

    i'm going to school to be a school teacher.. why? because i want to teach.. i could have gone to school for other things and end up making alot more money, but money isnt everything.. the read i get from saban is that he is of a similar mindset.. he WANTS to coach college football.. maybe, one day, he will try the nfl, like spurrier did, but i think he has alot he wants to accomplish on the college level and he prefers working with college kids anyway.. he wants to teach, not manage...

    They are doing exactly what they always do they take most popular names and repeatly throw them out for every job. Mueller is just trying to get people to read his column on espn. There have been plenty of jobs that Saban could have taken that were a whole lot better than the Cleveland job. This is not the last job Saban will be linked this season.

    I agree. Some would pay it, others wouldn't. I THINK (not 100%) that's why he didn't take the Bears job last year. They were only offering him half of what he's making here.

    Defensive coordinator of the browns was his last job in the NFL before he went to Michigan State, and he went to Kent State, but that's just some guy spectulating to make some buzz. If he wanted to be an NFL head coach he never would have left the browns position back then.

    Randy Mueller is not just "some guy". He's an excellent GM. Where is he now? Does anyone know?
